ListStore with an unknown number of columns?

I'm writing a sub to create a ListStore to hold data for a combo box.
I'd like to be able to have a variable number of columns, driven by the number of fields I pass into the sub.

Then I'd do something like:

    while (my @row = $sth->fetchrow_array) {
my $iter = $liststore->append;
        $liststore->set($iter, @row);

But the 'set' method of ListStore wants the fields passed as separate values.

In the examples folder I found the following code:

    for ($i = 0 ; $i < 50 ; $i+=5) {
        my $iter = $store->append;
        $store->set ($iter, 0 => "$i");

So I tried constructing a hash of data ( which gives me the ability to control the number of fields ), eg:

   0   => $primary_key,
   1   => $string_1,
   2   => $string_2

But when I try to pass that into the 'set' method it gives the same complaint as my first attempt:

Usage: set(list_store, iter, col1, val1, ...)

Is there a way to do what I want?
